Man pleads guilty to theft, possession of stolen property

Stolen vehicles and equipment were found on a property in the 6600 block of 256 Street.

Derek Sean Hall, 32, pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and theft in connection with a stolen bulldozer, trailer and used truck.

The Langley resident is expected to be sentenced on Jan. 15, 2015, in Surrey Provincial Court.

The investigation and charges stem from incidents involving Hall and his co-accused Roelof Den Dryver. The pair lived on a property in the 6600 block of 256 Street, where the stolen equipment was located.

Den Dryver was given an 18-month conditional sentence for stealing a brand new Dodge pickup during a test drive and falsely reporting he was carjacked. In a trial, Den Dryver was found guilty of theft over $5,000, stolen property over $5,000 and reporting a crime that was false.

He was acquitted on a charge of assaulting a police officer.
